AKRON, Ohio (WJW)-- BigShots Golf submitted plans to the city of Akron for a new location.
Permits show renderings for the tech-driven golf complex at the current spot of The Range at Firestone 9, on Swartz Road.
"We do not have approved plans for a BigShots Golf location in Akron and have nothing further to share at this time," BigShots Golf said in a statement on Thursday.
BigShots Golf is similar to Topgolf, which just opened a location in Independence in December, but it combines hitting the links with 3-D augmented reality.
